"The development of a long-term sterilizing capsule
that could be implanted under the skin and removed when pregnancy is desired
opens additional possibilities for coercive fertility control. The capsule
could be implanted at puberty and might be removable, with official permission,
for a limited number of births. A program of sterilizing women after their
second or third child, despite the relatively greater difficulty of the
operation than vasectomy, might be easier to implement than trying to sterilize
men." - John Holdren, Obama's Science Czar, Ecoscience There is still a large portion of the population that would deny
the idea that our government is ethically corrupt and that events such as
9/11 were strategically planned out
beforehand. It is difficult to comprehend the fact that the people in power
would plan such a devastating attack, for the aftermath has resulted in a
decade long war which has thwarted
humanity's path in such a destructive and unsustainable direction. In theory,
an elected leader is someone a group gives power in trust that they will make
the best decisions for the population's survival, so trying to grasp the idea
that our government is doing the opposite of this role is perplexing. However,
time and time again we are seeing the powers that be make decisions which
promote more separation, more fear, and more
destruction to our planet. There is even disconcerting evidence which reveals
that our government has a sinister agenda
for the population which is incomprehensible for most to fathom, and that
is a plan has been set out to purposely decrease our population down to an
unsettling percentage over the coming years.
Considering the amount of
the genetically modified foods that are being forcefully pumped onto our
grocery store shelves, the chemicals that are put into our cosmetics and
clothes, the chem-trails being sprayed from the skies above our homes, and the
harmful toxins mixed into vaccines, one can only consider
the idea that someone is trying to cause harm to the public. Recently, the U.S.
National Cancer Agency was exposed for manipulating cancer statistics, stating
that there has been a decrease in the number of
cancer cases over the past
decades when in fact cancer
cases have significantly increased over the years . The FDA is known for
their corruption, having approved harmful chemicals such as
brominated vegetable oil (BVO) in
Gatorade, a chemical which has been banned in over 7 countries. The Center
for Disease Control (CDC) has approved many harmful chemicals such as mercury
containing compounds in scheduled
vaccines. All of these
organizations were created for the purpose of protecting the people, and in
reality it seems like they are doing the opposite by poisoning people. So what
would be the intention behind the pollution
of our environment? Some argue that the global elite (New World Order,
Illuminati, etc.) have had an agenda of decreasing the world's population
drastically in the next couple of years, and that they have infiltrated all of
our main systems to ensure it unravels as they have planned.
intelligence quotient The
notion of a scientific elite classifying people based on aptitude, assigning an
efficient role for everyone, appeals to the conceit of intellectuals. The idea
of quantity, ranking, and assessing cognitive performance caught on in the US,
where eugenics was a prevailing intellectual fashion. In 1908, Henry H. Goddard
translated Alfred Binet's work, popularized it among the intellectual classes
and turned what might have been a humanitarian push to provide remedial help to
students into a weapon of war against the weak.
Scientific Origins of Eugenics
Elof Carlson, State University of New York at Stony Brook
The eugenics movement arose in the 20th century as
two wings of a common philosophy of human worth. Francis Galton, who coined the
term eugenics in 1883, perceived it as a
moral philosophy to improve
humanity by encouraging the ablest and healthiest people to have more children.
The Galtonian ideal of eugenics is usually termed positive eugenics. Negative
eugenics, on the other hand, advocated culling the least able from the breeding
population to preserve humanity's fitness. The eugenics movements in the US,
Germany, and Scandinavia favored the negative approach.
The notion of
segregating people considered unfit to reproduce dates back to antiquity. For
example, the Old Testament describes the Amalekites a supposedly
depraved group that God condemn to death. Concerns about environmental
influences that might damage heredity leading to ill health, early
death, insanity, and defective offspring were formalized in the early
1700s as degeneracy theory.
Degeneracy theory maintained a strong
scientific following until late in the 19th century.
called onanism, was presented in medical schools as the first biological theory
of the cause of degeneracy. Fear of degeneracy through masturbation led Harry
Clay Sharp, a prison physician in Jeffersonville, Indiana, to carry out
vasectomies on prisoners beginning in 1899.
The advocacy of Sharp and
his medical colleagues, culminated in an Indiana law mandating compulsory
sterilization of "degenerates." Enacted in
1907, this was the first
eugenic sterilization law in the US.
By the mid-19th century most scientists believed bad
environments caused degenerate heredity. Benedict Morel's work extended the
causes of degeneracy to some legitimate agents including poisoning by
mercury, ergot, and
other toxic substances in the environment. The sociologist Richard Dugdale
believed that good environments could transform degenerates into worthy
citizens within three generations. This position was a backdrop to his very
influential study on The Jukes (1877), a degenerate family of paupers and petty
criminals in Ulster County, New York. The inheritance of acquired
(environmental) characters was challenged in the 1880s by August Weismann,
whose theory of the germ plasm convinced most scientists that changes in body
tissue (the soma) had little or no effect on reproductive tissue (the germ
plasm). At the beginning of the 20th century, Weismann's views were absorbed by
degeneracy theorists who embraced negative eugenics as their favored model.
Adherents of the new field of genetics were ambivalent about eugenics.
Most basic scientists including William Bateson in Great Britain, and
Thomas Hunt Morgan in the US shunned eugenics as vulgar and an
unproductive field for research. However, Bateson's and Morgan's contributions
to basic genetics were quickly absorbed by eugenicists, who took interest in
Mendelian analysis of pedigrees of humans,
plants, and animals. Many eugenicists had some
type of agricultural background. Charles Davenport and Harry Laughlin, who
together ran the Eugenics Record Office, were introduced through their shared
interest in chicken breeding. Both also were active in Eugenics Section of the
American Breeder's Association (ABA). Davenport's book, Eugenics: The
Science of Human Improvement through Better Breeding, had a distinct
agricultural flavor, and his affiliation with the ABA was included under his
name on the title page. Agricultural genetics also provided the favored model
for negative eugenics: human populations, like agricultural breeds and
varieties, had to be culled of their least productive members, with only the
healthiest specimens used for breeding.
Evolutionary models of natural
selection and dysgenic (bad) hereditary practices in society also contributed
to eugenic theory. For example, Public welfare might
also play a role in allowing less fit people to survive and reproduce, further
upsetting the natural selection of fitter people.
Medicine also put its
stamp on eugenics. Physicians like Anton Ochsner and Harry Sharp were convinced
that social failure was a medical problem. Italian criminologist and physician
Cesare Lombroso popularized the image of an innate criminal type that was
thought to be a reversion or atavism of a bestial ancestor of humanity. When
medical means failed to help the psychotic, the retarded, the
pauper, and the vagrant, eugenicists shifted to preventive medicine. The German
physician-legislator Rudolph Virchow, advocated programs to deal with
disease prevention on a large
scale. Virchow's public health movement was fused with eugenics to form the
racial hygiene movement in Germany and came to America through
physicians he trained.
that "defectives" should be prevented from breeding, through custody in asylums
or compulsory sterilization. Many doctors felt that sterilization was a more
humane way of dealing with people who could not help themselves. Vasectomy and
tubal ligation were favored methods, because they did not alter the
physiological and psychological contribution of the reproductive organs.
Sterilization allowed the convicted criminal or
mental patient to
participate in society, rather than being institutionalized at public expense.
Sterilization was not viewed as a punishment because these doctors believed
(erroneously) that the social failure of "unfit" people was due to an
irreversibly degenerate germ plasm.
declining birth rates
A Brief History of
the Eugenics Movement Eugenics, the science of
improving the human race by scientific control of breeding, was viewed by a
large segment of scientists for almost one hundred years as an important, if
not a major means of producing paradise on earth.
These scientists concluded that many human traits were genetic, and that
persons who came from genetically 'good families' tended to turn out far better
than those who came from poor families. The next step was to encourage the good
families to have more children, and the poor families to have few or no
From these simple observations developed one of the most
far-reaching movements, Social
Darwinism, which culminated in the loss of millions of lives. It
discouraged aiding the sick, building asylums for the insane, or even aiding
the poor and all those who were believed to be in some way 'genetically
inferior', which included persons afflicted with an extremely wide variety of
unrelated physical and even psychological maladies. Their end goal was to save
society from the 'evolutionary inferior'. The means was sexual sterilization,
permanent custody of 'defective' adults by the state, marriage restrictions,
and even the elimination of the unfit through means which ranged from refusal
to help them to outright killing. This movement probably had a greater adverse
influence upon society than virtually any other that developed from a
scientific theory in modern times.
The eugenics movement grew from the
core ideas of evolution, primarily those expounded by Charles Darwin. Eugenics
spanned the political spectrum from conservatives to radical socialists; what
they had in common was a belief in evolution and a faith that science,
particularly genetics, held the key for improving the
life of humans. The first eugenics movement in America was founded in 1903
and included many of the most well known new-world biologists in the country:
David Star Jordan was its chairman (a prominent biologist and chancellor of
Stanford University), Luther Burbank (the famous plant breeder), Vernon L.
Kellog (a world renowned biologist at Stanford), William B. Castle (a Harvard
geneticist), Roswell H. Johnson (a geologist and a professor of genetics), and
Charles R. Henderson of the University of Chicago.
One of the most prominent
eugenicists in the US was Charles Benedict Davenport, a Harvard Ph.D, where he
served as instructor of biology until he became an assistant professor at the
University of Chicago in 1898. In 1904, he became director for a new station
for experimental evolution at Cold Spring Harbor on Long Island. Edward
Thorndike of Columbia University, one of the most influential
educational psychologists in history, was also involved. His work is still
today regarded as epic and his original textbook on tests and measurements set
the standard in the field. Other persons active in the early eugenics society
were eminent sexologists Havelock Ellis, Dr F. W. Mott, a leading expert in
insanity, and Dr A. F. Tredgold, an author of a major textbook on mental
deficiency, and one of the foremost British experts on this subject. Nobel
laureate George Bernard Shaw, author H. G. Wells, and planned parenthood
founder Margaret Sanger were also very involved in the movement.
As the eugenics movement grew, it added other
prominent individuals. Among them were Alexander Graham Bell, the inventor of
the telephone who was 'one of the most respected, if not one of the most
zealous participants in the American Eugenics Movement.' He published numerous
papers in scholarly journals specifically on genetics and the deafness problem,
and also in other areas. Of the many geneticists who are today recognized as
scientific pioneers that were once eugenicists include J. B. S. Haldane, Thomas
Hunt Morgan, William Bateson, Herman J. Muller, and evolutionary biologist
Professors were prominent among both the officers and
members of various eugenics societies which sprang up in the US and Europe. In
virtually every college and university were professors 'inspired by the new
creed,' and most of the major colleges had credit courses on eugenics. These
classes were typically well attended and their content was generally accepted
as part of proven science. Many eugenicists also lectured widely and developed
new courses, both at their institutes and elsewhere, to help educate the public
in the principles of eugenics.'
The eugenics movement also attacked
the idea of democracy itself. Many concluded
that letting inferior persons participate in government was naive, if not
dangerous. Providing educational opportunities and
governmental benefits for everyone likewise seemed a misplacement of resources:
one saves only the best cows for breeding, slaughtering the inferior ones, and
these laws of nature must be applied to
human animals. If a primary determinant of mankind's behavioural nature is
genetic as the movement concluded, then environmental reforms are largely
useless. Further, those who are at the bottom of the social ladder in society,
such as Blacks, are in this position not because of social injustice or
discrimination, but as a result of their own inferiority.
Galton, a cousin of Charles Darwin, began his lifelong quest to quantify
humans, and search for ways of genetically improving the human race around
1860. The idea that humans could achieve biological progress and eventually
breed a superior race was not seen as heretical to the Victorian mind. All
around Galton were the fruits of the recent advances in technology and the
industrial revolution that had dramatically proved human mastery over inanimate nature. They knew
that, by careful selection, farmers could obtain better breeds of both plants
and animals, and it was logical that the human races could similarly be
improved. Galton and his coworker, Karl Pearson, are regarded as founders of
the modern field of statistics, and both made major contributions. Their
thorough, detailed research was extremely convincing, especially to academics.
Francis Galton believed the route to produce a race of gifted humans was by
controlling marriages of superior stock.
Around the turn of the century,
eugenics was fully accepted by the educated classes. Books on eugenics became
best-sellers Albert E. Wiggam wrote at least four popular books on
eugenics, several were best-sellers and the prestigious Darwinian family name
stayed with the eugenics movement for years the president of the British
Eugenics Society from 1911 to 1928 was Major Leonard Darwin, Charles'
The impact of the eugenics movement on American law was especially
profound. In the 1920s, congress introduced and passed many laws to restrict
the influx of 'inferior races,' including all of those from Southern and
Eastern Europe, and also China. These beliefs were also reflected in everything
from school textbooks to social policy. American Blacks especially faced the
brunt of these laws. Inter-racial marriage was forbidden by law in many areas
and discouraged by social pressure in virtually all. The eugenicists concluded
that the American belief that education could benefit everyone was
unscientific, and that the conviction that social reform and social justice
could substantially reduce human misery was more than wrong-headed, it was
When Galton died in January of 1911, the University
College received much of his money and established a Galton eugenics
professorship, and a new department called applied statistics. The fund enabled
Karl Pearson to be freed from his 'burdensome' teaching to devote full time to
eugenics research. Karl Pearson was no minor figure in the history of science.
His contributions in statistics are crucial to virtually all modern scientific
research. He not only developed the Pearson product moment correlational
coefficient, to which his name is attached, but also
regression analysis, multiple correlation,
and chi square, and made numerous important contributions in the area of
statistical analysis including the goodness
of fit theory.
Between 1903 and 1918, Karl Pearson and his staff
published over 300 works, plus various government reports and popular
expositions of genetics. Some of his co-workers questioned the idea that the
only way to improve a nation is to ensure that its future generations come
chiefly from the more superior members of the existing generation, but if they
valued their position, most said nothing.
In 1925 Pearson began
publishing The Annals of Eugenics. He continued to contribute both his
enthusiasm and his mathematical genius to the cause until he died in 1936. He
helped spread eugenics, first to Germany and later to the US, then to the four
corners of the Earth.
In 1904 Charles Davenport convinced the Carnegie
Institute to establish a station for 'the
experimental study of evolution' at Cold Spring Harbor, some thirty miles
from New York City. Davenport then recruited a staff to work on various
research projects ranging from natural selection to hybridization. He argued
that hereditability was a major influence in everything from criminality to
epilepsy, even alcoholism and
pauperism (being poor). Among the many problems with his research is that he
assumed that traits which we now know are polygenic in origin were single
Mendelian characters. This error caused him to greatly oversimplify
interpolating from the genotype to the phenotype. He ignored the forces of the
environment to such a degree that he labelled those who 'loved the sea' as
suffering from thalassaphilia, and concluded that it was a sex-linked recessive
trait because it was virtually always exhibited in males! Davenport also
concluded that prostitution was caused not
by social, cultural or economic circumstances, but a dominant genetic trait
which caused a woman to be a nymphomaniac.
Part of the reason that
the eugenics movement caught on so rapidly was because of the failures of the
many innovative reformatory and other programmes designed to help the poor, the
criminal, and people with mental and physical problems. Many of those who
worked in these institutions concluded that most people in these classes were
'heredity losers' in the struggle for existence. And these unfit should not be
allowed to survive and breed indiscriminately. Evolution gave them an answer to
the difficulties that they faced. In short, instead of helping people, charity
was supposedly hurting them by destroying positive habits of industry and
enabling them to breed more of their own genetically inferior type. Many of
those who began their careers helping the poor concluded that many, if not
most, of their programmes were doing more harm than good.
Many eugenicists also believed that negative traits that
one picked up in one's lifetime could be passed on. As many of the supposed
biologically inferior groups reached their second and third generation in
America, such as Ashkenazi, many did extremely well, empirically documenting
that such groups were not biologically-defective. Another problem was that not
only were Blacks and Jews singled out but the Irish, Welsh and numerous
other groups were also judged as racially inferior. It soon became apparent
that many of the hodgepodge claims were tenuous. Research by anthropologists
showed how incredibly important culture and learning are, even in shaping minor
Other researchers proved that diet and sanitary
conditions were extremely important, especially in the so-called
feeblemindedness condition. The irony of the assumption that feeblemindedness
was inherited became apparent when it was found that many clearly mentally
deficient persons produced offspring which were fully normal. This was
especially true of those whose children were raised by relatives and had
decent food and

London. (Bernard Schreiber, The Men Behind Hitler, A German Warning to the

1912 American sociologist
Henry Herbert Goddard, director of the Training School for Feeble-Minded Boys
and Girls in Vineland NJ, publishes his account of the Kallikaks. Deborah
Kallikak was considered feeble-minded. Her family tree was traced back six
generations and feeble-mindedness was purportedly found in every generation.
Elizabeth Kite, an assistant of Goddard who had no formal training, did most of
the research. The work demonstrated that feeble-mindedness and a propensity
towards crime was inherited. Scientists loved the work, a Broadway show based
on the book was considered. (Smith, Minds Made Feeble, p. 5). Years later, the
data was found to have been fabricated by Kite and Goddard.
Goddard's book Feeblemindedness: Its Causes and Consequences was the complete
study of the 300 families of the Kallikak line. Stories on the Jukes and Nams
of New York, the Tribe of Ishmael in Indiana, the Hill Folk of Ohio and the
Dacks of Pennsylvania were also published about this time, however the Kallikak
study was by far the most influential. All of the above-mentioned works were
carried out by American sociologists. The Kallikak study was published in
Germany the same year. (Smith p. 161)

(Mosse, p. 216)
1921 The Birth Control League, founded by Sanger in
1917, changes its name to the American Birth Control League. Lothrop Stoddard
is on the board of directors. (Elasah Drogin, Margaret Sanger: Father of Modern
Society, p. 13) In this year, Sanger wrote, "I think you must agree ... that
the campaign for birth control is not merely of eugenic value, but is
practically identical with the final aims of eugenics... Birth control
propaganda is thus the entering wedge for the eugenic educator." (Margaret
Sanger, "The Eugenic Value of Birth Control Propaganda.", Birth Control Review,
October 1921, p. 5)
1922 Lothrop Stoddard publishes The Revolt Against
Civilization. It asserts that uncontrolled reproduction among defective
families would bring the "twilight of the American mind" and the "dusk of
mankind". (Smith, p.3)
1922 Margaret Sanger publishes Pivot of
Civilization. It advocates birth control and IQ testing, mandatory for the
lower classes. Philanthropy is seen as a positive danger to society, since it
allows the lower classes to propagate. Sanger will assert that up to 70% of the
population had an intellect of less than a 15-year old (David Kennedy, Birth
Control in America, the Career of Margaret Sanger, p. 116) She will also
promote the idea of parenthood licenses - no one being permitted to have a
child unless they first obtain a government-approved parenthood permit.
Margaret Sanger is a strong advocate and practitioner of free compassion, and
considers marriage both an abomination and an assault on human liberty. She
supports compulsory education and restriction on child labor, not because it is
good for the children, but because it would prove to be a burden to the poor
and force them to restrict family size.
1924 The Immigration
Restriction Act comes into effect. This act won't be removed until 1965. It is
passed largely due to the supporting testimony of the Eugenics Records Office,
Cold Spring Harbor, Long Island. (Smith, p. 3)
The US state of
Virginia passes the Racial Integrity Act, which forbids miscegany (sexual
relations between whites and blacks). This law will become the model for the
German Nuremburg laws. It is itself modelled on a sterilization act developed
by Harry Laughlin. The law was written by W.A. Plecker; a eugenicist and the
registrar for vital statistics for Virginia, he also worked closely with the
Eugenics Record Office, and belonged to several eugenic organizations. (Smith,

Brave New World. It explicitly models a society created through the Marquis de

Huxley predicts that totalitarianism will take the form of government control
in exchange for social stability. Totalitarian governments must make their
subjects compassion their servitude, and this is best undertaken by allowing
hedonism. Allowing moral degradation, and the silence which it entails, are the
best weapons of propaganda. According to Huxley, in order for totalitarianism
to take hold, four principles must be present:
techniques of suggestion. Huxley proposed drugs such as scopolamine, and infant
conditioning, but he wrote before the effects of television were

Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious
practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This
web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the
